In a long post on the company`s website, microsoft has urged its users to switch to new versions of the windows OS.
“The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product,” reads an excerpt on the website.
Microsoft strongly recommends that those still using Windows 7 move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.
However, this does not mean any PC with the version will stop. It will only leave users vulnerable to security threats like viruses.
According to Microsoft, the move is to enable the company to focus its investment on supporting newer technologies and great new experiences.
This will end a decade long support service and great Operation system (OS) updates.
